I didn't realize how late they had started pushing the season. A preseason game in July in 1995. Here in 2013 training camp has just begun. I bet you had some dangerously hot preseason games in all those pads in those days.

I was there. Was watching from about fifteen feet away when Steve Lofton batted down that final pass.

No sunscreen left me french fried for a week, but it was worth it :)

It's really crazy that its been 18 years. 18 years ago today, I became a Panther fan. I was 8 years old and just starting to like football. Since I was just starting to watch, I wanted a team that I could follow from their history. As I watched the HOF game, I told my mom that my favorite team would be the team that won that game.

Panthers won that preseason game, and I have been a fan ever since. It's crazy to think of all the ups and downs in this teams relatively short history, and I am so glad I have been a fan every step of the way.

I remember watching that game...hard to believe it has already been 18 years.  I was only 7 and my dad and I were Dolphins fans prior to the Panthers existing.  I am so happy we have a team here now and can't even imagine not having the Panthers to follow 24/7 365
